Nutrition & Dietetics Service
What is a Dietitian?
Dietitians are experts in translating scientific information about food and nutrition into practical dietary advice for a range of health conditions.
Our dietitians work with patients, healthcare staff and the general public to promote optimum nutrition for health.

Our dietitians work in the community and in hospitals to help people make dietary changes to prevent and treat nutrition-related diseases, including:
- Gastrointestinal disorders, eg coeliac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and food intolerances
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
- Swallowing difficulties
As dietitians we aim to provide up to date practical evidence based advice on nutrition in relation to these conditions
